if i were to be exiled to a desert isle, and i could bring only one author not Shakespeare, it would be Rudyard Kipling (altho Joe Conrad would be painfully missed); read Kipling's 'On Greenhow Hill' for full effect of what i allude to

I read 'Stalky and Co' when I was young and to this day I'm relieved that my parents couldn't afford to send me to a private school. (And these are the people who are running our Country !!)
